Beth Mooney: The 2022 Commonwealth Games have concluded in Birmingham. At the same time, Australia showed its sovereignty. Australia won the most medals at 178. While England got 176 and India got 61 medals. But Australia cricket team’s opener Beth Mooney contributed significantly to her team reaching the gold medal in this Commonwealth Games. Two weeks ago, Australia captain Mag Lenning had made it to the number-1 spot in the ICC Women’s T20 Rankings. But Mooney is back at No. 1 after performing brilliantly in the Commonwealth Games. Mooney played a scintillating 41-ball 61 against India in the final of the Commonwealth Games, scoring 179 runs as the tournament’s top run-scorer.
Mooney has topped the ICC rankings for the third time in his T20 career. Prior to this, she was number 1 from March 8, 2020 to March 21, 2021 and from October 9, 2021 to July 26, 2022. Apart from this, Tahlia McGrath has also performed brilliantly. She has a batting average of 93.75 and a bowling average of 13.66 in 14 matches, taking her to the top five in the batting rankings and 12th in the all-rounders’ list for the first time.
